Masergy Communications Inc., a leader in global hybrid networking, announced the addition of Managed Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN) to its global hybrid networking portfolio. SD-WAN is a relatively new approach to designing and deploying wide area networks to meet business and application performance requirements.
Mainstream enterprise adoption of public cloud services and SaaS applications are driving the demand for agile hybrid networks that can intelligently combine broadband and high performance private networks. Market research firm International Data Corp (IDC) underscores this trend, reporting that “SD-WAN revenues are expected to exceed $6 billion in 2020, with a compounded growth rate of more than 90% between 2015 and 2020.”
“Hybrid networking and virtualized managed services, including new SD-WAN services, give businesses many new managed service options to create agile networks,” said Mike Sapien, Principal Analyst at Ovum. "Businesses should seek service providers that deliver an integrated, comprehensive suite of hybrid network solutions to achieve optimal price/performance. Masergy’s Hybrid Networking with Managed SD-WAN is one such solution.”
Masergy’s Managed SD-WAN is the latest addition to the Masergy Managed Network f(n)™ family of fully managed network functions. The solution supports premise, cloud and virtualized deployments, and can utilize any combination of broadband and high-performance private WAN connections. General availability is scheduled for Q4 2016.
